Kilmeade: The number one story in America right now is about the Patriot Act. We now have gone dark for 48 hours because Senator Rand Paul has gotten his way. He has delayed things to the point where no decision can be made. How do you feel about that? Trump: Well, he’s got his views. And they’re not really the views of too many it just seems. Look, you look at the mad men and the mad people out there in the world, I think probably today were willing to sacrifice certain things for security. I don't know if the security is going to be better or not better. But on the chance and the hope that it is, that we know something about what we're doing, I think security has to preside. It has to you know be preeminent. So I'm looking at security. I think, you know if anybody wants to listen to my phone calls, it's fine. They're going to be very boring. Going to be a very boring boring conversation.

Trump: Well, I don't trust the government either. And I certainly don’t trust this government and the decisions they make. I really don't trust the decision making of our government. But never the less, if it's a security situation and if they're saying you know we need this -- there are checks and balances. There are certain checks and balances. You just can't do exactly what some people are saying you can. But I think we have to err on the side of security. It's certainly not something I like. It’s certainly not what you like. But you know when you have all these maniacs all over the world, I think we probably have to go that little bit of an extra step. We don't love it but we have probably not much of a choice. I just hope the government knows what they're doing a lot better than what they did with the Obamacare website and with all the other things. You know it's such gross incompetence in our government that you really wonder what's going on. You know in the old days you had a certain confidence in government. You don't have that confidence anymore. You see where we get Bergdahl and they get five of their leaders that are right now back on the battlefield.
